CHA 2016 Shenanigans…

2016-01-01 11.50.15-3

Long time, no post.  *chortle* I dropped off the grid to finish up artwork for an upcoming Essentials by Ellen release and then took off for Florida for nearly two weeks to spend the holidays with my daughter’s family!  Trying to capture Lilly on camera (and not just a blur) is challenging.  There were a few brief moments where she held still long enough for us to snap a shot or two… LOL!  She’s a bundle of energy, I tell ya’!  I soaked up every minute of it and we had an amazing time!

You can call and Facetime until the cows come home, but there’s nothing like having those little arms wrap around your neck in a big “pink” hug… She brings us joy in ways I can’t begin to describe…

A few days after returning, I was back on a plane with my dear friend and colleague Ellen headed for CHA (Craft & Hobby Association Conference & Show) in Anaheim, CA!  Hooked up with many friends, saw lots of new crafty goodies coming and also got to have dinner with my little sister! GOOD TIMES, GOOD TIMES!!!

Carissa's Selfie Stick

Carissa brought a selfie stick and I can’t tell you how many times we TRIED to get a good shot… Laughed so hard I thought I’d split my sides!

Check out our Favorite Finds video in today’s InTouch Newsletter Article HERE.

I did a recap Flip-a-Gram of our adventures… You can see that HERE.

I wish I could figure out how to embed the Flip-a-Gram, but alas, my technical skills are crap and I’m clueless.

While down in Cali, my latest Hello, Monday posted over in the CLASSroom HERE.
